There are many lavish places to splurge on fish eggs and icy bubbly, but floating in an inner tube does not come immediately to mind. This month, with Seabourn cruise line, that decadent dream becomes a reality. Seabourn’s 229-suite ship Odyssey was the first addition to its fleet in a decade, offering voyages to Barbados, St. Maarten and neighboring islands. There are plenty of luxe amenities on board, but none as curious as its signature “Caviar in the Surf” event which features immaculately dressed butlers wading waist-deep in the water to serve the title delicacy. After the caviar, swimmers can transition to a leisurely lobster banquet on the sand. Of course, there are seven restaurants and bars aboard the ship for those spoilsports who would rather not dine in their bathing suits.
